on caring for the poor

this is what Mark Sanford’s Lt Governor Andre Bauer had to say:

“My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed! You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that.”

I wonder, is he friends with Pat Robertson?   Shame on you Bauer.  Have some compassion.  Jesus said there would always be poor people – so help them.  While certainly there are some who take advantage of the system, there are not a few who are poor by no fault of their own, especially children Mr Bauer.  Shame on you for such a crude, insensitive, immoral comment.

  1. I believe we are instructed to feed those who need food and help those who are weak. We can do this with wisdom, but if we love the Lord Jesus, such caring action will be part of our life.

  2. Many of the people Jesus healed definitely didn’t deserve it. I am glad that Jesus is not like Mr. Bauer or we would all be poor and dead in trespasses and sin on the highway in the fast lane on the way to hell
